One notable addition is the ability to use Face ID or Touch ID to unlock private tabs in the Safari browser.?

This means that even if your device is already unlocked, accessing these tabs requires an extra layer of biometric authentication. This handy feature offers added privacy, especially when sharing your device with others. To enable or disable this feature, simply go to Settings > Safari > Toggle 'Require Face ID to Unlock Private Browsing' as per your preference.
